iVolume available on the Mac App Store

On January 6th 2011 Apple opened the Mac App Store. This is a store directly integrated into Mac OS X so that users can easily buy and install third party software. Every software in that store has to go through a review process at Apple to keep the quality of the available Apps high. Regarding the huge preceding success of the iPhone App Store I knew that the Mac App Store most probably would also be very successful and I wanted to be part of it. So I submitted iVolume early to Apple. Unfortunately it did not went through the review process as fast as expected and so I missed the grand opening. But finally, a week later, iVolume is available on the Mac App Store, hooray!

So every Mac OS X user that wants to buy iVolume can now decide if he still wants to go the classical way of downloading and installing the demo version of iVolume and then doing a purchase on the online web store linked from the iVolume homepage … or if he wants to go the easier route and do a one-click-purchase-download-install from the Mac App Store. Here is the link to iVolume on the Mac App Store:


Please note that you have to remove the demo version of iVolume from your hard disk before attempting to buy iVolume on the Mac App Store. Because if you have the demo version installed, the Mac App Store thinks you have already purchased it and just shows an “Installed” button instead of a “Buy” button. Don’t worry, if you trash the iVolume application all your settings and analyzation results will still be there and carried over to the Mac App Store version of iVolume.

    Is it possible to switch to the new App Store Version, after bying a Lizens from Kagi?

      Unfortunately Apple does not offer a solution for that, so it’s not possible. But we will continue to support both ways, so existing customers are not forced to switch to the Mac App Store if they don’t want to. However, if you want to enjoy the comfortable automatic updates and installs and other advantages of the Mac App Store you have to consider to purchase again.

    Awesome app! Any chance for a “rescan itunes library”-button? Kinda annoying to restart the app between itunes library updates. 🙂

    I wish to delete the iVolume application settings and analyzation results.

    How do I go about finding them and completely deleting them?

    Thank you for your help.
